Burlington's Proposed Bike Network: A Step in the Right Direction, but Not There Yet

PlanBTV Walk Bike is Burlington's first-ever attempt to (among other things) plan for a complete, fully integrated bike network that brings biking within reach for everyone.  The draft bike network map is a big step in the right direction, but it still falls substantially short of what is needed to make biking a safe option everywhere in the city.  

The consultant team that is developing Burlington's walk-bike master plan needs your comments on this draft bike network map!  Please submit comments by October 22.  Here are the details:

  • You can download the original version of the map at this link.  Be sure to take a look at Local Motion's mark-up, though!
  • Local Motion's mark-up of that same map is below (click here or on the image to download a high-res version of the map).  You can use our mark-up as a reference as you develop your own comments, or you can simply tell the consultant team that you support Local Motion's suggested changes.
  • Send your comments by email to:  Julie Flynn < This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. >
  • The deadline for comments is October 22!
